I did it again, didn't I?
Y'all came rushing over here after reading the title of this post because you thought I was going to go on a hiatus, or disappear, or something along those lines...right?
Its okay, I'm not going anywhere. Yet.
Dun, dun, dun.
Kidding, kidding. Touchy crowd, aren't you?
What I wanted to do was talk about taking one. Taking a hiatus from blogging, for those of you that don't already know, basically means taking an extended break. Normally because of private issues, school, work or something along those lines. Lots of bloggers take them and how often or how long is completely up the individual.
Myself? I haven't taken one...yet. But I have thought about it a time or two. And each time I come to the same conclusion, I've worked so hard to get this far...do I really want to take a break now? Usually after that rousing pep talk I find ways to make things work, not always as well as before but work nonetheless.
But I don't have near the things going on that other bloggers do [I also have NO time management skills to speak of but that's another story...] so in most cases a little motivational speech can go a long way with me.
Lately, with a possible full-time job on the line in addition to my being a full-time student and book blogger, I've been thinking about it more and more. What would it take to make me go on a hiatus? What are my limits and how far would I push them? [I am the queen of pushing limits!]
For me it would be a case of something has to give. Either my grades are in danger or, if I was working at the time, my job, or something seriously wrong in my offline existence. You know, dire straits Princess-style. So, no matter how often I threaten or think about it I know that as long as I possibly can I'm going to keep juggling blogging, school and what ever else life throws my way because I simply can't see myself taking off from Typing Tiara. [See future employers, THAT is dedication. I have it. In bucket loads. My whole royal treasury, full of DEDICATION...and books. But mostly dedication.]
What about you guys? What would it take for you to take a hiatus? Have you taken one? Why for and how long?
